    I have a question here for the guys running S250 Bobcats and NH L185's.
    What size pusher is the max. you would run for a dedicated machine at one site ? I have access to a 10' Pro Tech that I would like to run on a leased machine. ProTechs Website claims either machine should handle it no problem. Artic pushes 10'ers for this size machine as well.
    Longest run will be about 90 yards, we plow with the storm but there can be drifting as well at times.
    What are your thoughts ?
    I would love an 8611, not in the cards yet

    I think that 80% of the time the machine would handle a 10 ft unit. But when you start getting a heavy type snow you could run into problems.

    but you prolly know that already.

    I personally like 8' protechs for this reason. You can put the protech on and drive right up on to the trailer to go from site to site. Where as the 10' you have to take it off and put it on a 2nd trailer to get it there then take it back off.

    If you have any loading docks to backdrag the 10ft can be a little hard to move around in between any trailers. I like the 8ft with the back drag option
